Third top 20 player for ASB Classic Nov 19, 2006

The ASB Classic has secured its third top 20 ranked player, it was announced on Sunday.
Defending champion Marion Bartoli has confirmed her attendance at the January event.
Tournament director Richard Palmer said from their perspective they've actually secured three players in a quasi-top 10.
Palmer said it's especially good news considering the fact that they're not allowed to obtain players ranked one to ten.
Richard Palmer said Bartoli joins Anastasia Myskina and Daniela Hantuchova as the three top-20 players at the tournament.
Palmer said Bartoli has had a fantastic year in picking up a further two titles, as well as reaching world number 17.
